I work out and have a smoothie with 35g of whey protein powder everyday. I haven't noticed any abnormal acne breakouts at all (just my normal mild but persistent acne). I use "Whey Delicious" by a brand called NHF (NuSport Health & Fitness). A 35g scoop = 26g protein, 4g carbs, 2g fat. I use it mainly because it's vanilla flavoured and yummy in smoothies. Am pretty sure that no matter what brand of whey you go with, it won't affect your acne.
